POWRi Double at Jacksonville for Cannon McIntosh this Weekend
Lonnie Wheatley, BIXBY, Okla. (October 4, 2019) – The Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League points chase resumes for 16-year-old Cannon McIntosh with a pair of events at Jacksonville Speedway this weekend.
The pair of events atop the ¼-mile clay oval in Illinois take place on Friday and Saturday.
This weekend’s action follows a pair of strong outings last time out in POWRi action for McIntosh with a pair of top-five finishes aboard the Dave Mac Motorsports Toyota-TRD Spike No. 08 Midget on September 13-14.
“It was a much-needed weekend for us with a podium finish and a top-five,” McIntosh explains.
The September 13 event at Belle-Clair Speedway in Belleville, IL, began with McIntosh winning his heat race to earn the third-starting position. He went on to post a fifth-place finish at night’s end.
“The car felt really good at Belle-Clair,” McIntosh says. “I made one mistake early and let three or four cars get by, but we were able to work back up there.”
Moving on to Macon Speedway the next night, McIntosh raced from seventh to third in his heat race to earn the front row outside starting position for the main event.
“We led nine laps or so early on, then (Logan) Seavey showed the bottom,” McIntosh recalls. “I tried it, but he was the only one that could really go well down there.”
McIntosh finished out the night in third.
A sixth-place finisher last time out at Jacksonville on September 6, McIntosh has his sights set on POWRi National Midget win this weekend.
Along with Toyota-TRD, other marketing partners making the 2019 Cannon McIntosh slate of events possible includes Sanders and Associates, Car and Fleet, Mobil 1, Speedway Engine Development, Best Graphics, Fieldhouse Gear, Precision Inspection, Panels by Smoke, Walker Performance, Sanders Wheels, American Discount Brake and Muffler, D&N Fabrication, Darling Ingredients, PJ’s and Hinds Family.
